The race to win the Premier League Golden Boot in 2022/23 is on, with Manchester City's Erling Haaland, Harry Kane, Mohamed Salah and Marcus Rashford among the top players banging them in on a regular basis.

Mohamed Salah and Son Heung-min won last year's award after bagging 23 goals for Liverpool and Tottenham respectively, and it's a huge feather in the cap of any player to finish the season as top scorer.

Thierry Henry has won the most Golden Boot awards in Premier League history (4), ahead of Salah, Kane and Alan Shearer (3).

Here's who in contention to win this season's crown...
